Hey guys get out there if you can! There weren't a lot of deer moving in the rain this morning, but this buck showed up around 9am. I let him walk while waiting on the "big boy" to show up, but ended up not seeing anything else. I'm going to try again tomorrow, but thought I would share this quick video.

How old do you think he is? (I was thinking 4yrs old and figured he could grow some more)

Should I let him walk again tomorrow if he shows? I'm thinking he's a nice buck, but might be more impressive next year. What do you guys think?

Hehe, no this would be first deer ever. I'm in a bow only county (Grayson) and I usually only hunt pigs. A friend let me borrow his crossbow this season because I've got a lot of big bucks on the property.

Apparently you don't get excited by the sight of deer like most of us do. Of course you should shoot it.

That buck looks mature with an impressive (at least to me) rack. If I'd seen him he would be hanging in the tree outside my cabin rifle

Up to you I guess but if it was me I'd put the smack down on him. A mature deer with that kind of mass and 7 points would be in my freezer and I'd have an awesome euro on the wall. I seriously doubt he'll add any points next year and if he does it would probably be another G3 on that right antler. But ya never really know.

That is an awesome looking old old buck. I bet he is at his peak right now, maybe some kickers next year. But he will not get any taller or wider.

I would be skinning him right if I was you.

Just wonder if an AR county.......Is he 13"? I have several on our place like him but I am afraid they are not wide enough. I think he needs to go for sure.

It looks close, but I'll say he makes 13". That's a big deer. I think that makes his rack look smaller.

If you have a lot of better bucks that you are waiting on, I would go ahead and take him out if he is legal there. Let your better ones grow some more and get rid of that old dude.

He'd be hanging on the meat pole, especially with a bow! He has a really cool looking rack, with that mass and the tips almost overlapping.

I'd be proud to hang that big 7 on my wall especially with a bow and first deer.
